The Bard's Tale Wiki

Kylearan's Amber Tower is a single level tower in Skara Brae, featured in Tales of the Unknown. The party must navigate a complex labyrinth of traps, puzzles, darkness and other obstacles before finally meeting the keeper of the tower, Kylearan himself.

Access to the Tower[]

At first, the tower is inaccessible due to the iron gates that shut off the tower from the rest of Skara Brae. To gain access, the party has to defeat the statue of the Mad God in Harkyn's Castle. After that, the characters are teleported to a square right outside Kylearan's Tower. You may then choose to enter the tower or simply retreat past the iron gates, which is a one-way trip. Once the heroes are outside, the gates will not reopen for them, requiring them to return to Harkyn's Castle and approach the statue's location once more. There will now be a portal in its place, which takes you back to the Tower entrance.

In Mangar's Tower, the players may stumble across an item called the Masterkey. This key not only opens the iron gate to Mangar's Tower (like the Onyx Key), but also the iron gates guarding Kylearan's Tower. There is, however, not much point in visiting Kylearan again.
